Landcombe Cottage, Strete, Dartmouth
Just around the corner from Blackpool Sands, off the one of the most picturesque stretches of coastal road in the country sits Landcombe Cottage. Named after the pretty cove that it has exclusive access to from its rear garden on the South West Coast Path.
Previously two cottages merged into one, This substantial property has potential for further development and be transformed into a Grand Design.
Landcombe Cottage is situated amongst a collection of pretty detached houses where the road is lined with traditional dry stone walling and pretty hedgerows. The crunch of pebbles greets us as we pull into the ample driveway.
We are welcomed into the home by a charming hallway - plenty of room to shed the shoes and coats, Straight through to the generous dining room, easily accommodating the expansive dining table and dressers. A bay window provides not only an excellent additional sitting area but superb views out over the garden and beyond. The kitchen is located through a large open archway and is fitted with classic cream shaker cabinets topped with black granite worktops, double sinks and a twin free-standing electric cookers.
This space could be easily opened up to incorporate both the kitchen and dining room, creating one enormous open plan space. The picture window could be replaced by patio or bi-folding doors for direct access to the garden. Just off this space is a large utility room, plenty of room for laundry appliances.
We cross the dining room again and drift into the first of two reception rooms, this space currently houses substantial furniture and makes a great TV room or kids sitting room - especially as it connects with a large living room beyond. Both rooms share the verdant countryside and sea views.
The second living room spans the depth of the house allowing enough space for two different seating areas. This room is light and bright thanks not only to the sliding doors leading out to the garden, but also the two unique arched windows adding great character to the space. Honey-toned wooden flooring runs underfoot as we make our way upstairs.
We are drawn up to a great landing and picture window to admire the views. To the left, the master bedroom, an oriel bay provides a fantastic window seat to perch, read a book and enjoy the sunshine all day. Adjoining this room, a stunning en-suite. A fantastic free-standing bath takes centre stage in this luxuriously decorated suite. A second door to the hallway provides access to the rest of the family - too pretty not to share! Next to this entrance a modern fully tiled walk-in shower room.
Back across the landing now to the second bedroom. Built in wardrobes and it’s own en-suite bathroom & excellent window seat from which to enjoy the very same vista as the master.
Up to the next storey and the third bedroom, taking full advantage of the vast attic space, this huge bedroom spans the whole depth of the property, across the hallway and currently used as an office for the holiday letting business, with it’s dormer window framing stunning sea views, it would easily accommodate a double bed and become the seventh bedroom in this house, better still a private sitting room or dressing room as it links to an even larger light and bright dual aspect bedroom.
On the way back downstairs take a peek at the great little WC that completes this floor.
Two more good-sized dual-aspect double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom are accessed via a second staircase just off the living room, making Landcombe Cottage ideal for multigenerational living or partial holiday letting.
A sweet, fully glazed garden room leads us outdoors to the magnificent, level garden. A great plot with tons of potential. To the left there is a barbecue area and a well-positioned swing seat takes maximum advantage of verdant views over rolling Devonshire countryside to the sea beyond.
The near invisible fence at the end of the garden adds to the sense of space. An unassuming gate gives direct access to the South Devon Coastal Path, which leads down to a beautiful isolated cove from which the cottage takes its name.
Landcombe Cove, perfectly positioned between Blackpool Sands and Strete Gate is just far enough away from the road to not attract the crowds. This joyful little cove is often left to the locals - what a place to enjoy a spot of wild swimming while the sun breaks on the horizon.
